Subject RE: tomcat pass through to IIS (not IIS to tomcat)
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2004 21:53:05 GMT

I use mod_proxy in Apache to control flow with in one machine. 

By using this, I can decide if I want Apache do render some requests or
forward some requests to IIS, or some of the multiple tomcat instances. 

I use base the decisions on where to render the requests on the host
name, e.g. I use VirtualHost mappings, but not one subfolder of a
website. I guess it's possible I've never tried. 

So a typical virtual host configuration in my server that redirects all
requests for some specific host on to port 8080 (for example some tomcat
instance) : 

<VirtualHost *>
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

You can also decide not to forward some paths by using :

ProxyPass /somepath !

Then you could map those paths into some other server running on the
same machine on different port, such as IIS. 
That I haven't done my self, so I leave it to you to find out how that's

Hope it helps

I've searched on the web and in the archives, but have only found
solutions for vice versa.

Thanks a lot,
